Estate Tax

50% tax after the first $1 million in assets, a legalized theft on the minority.

Bush's tax cuts eliminate the estate tax "death tax" in 2010. Congress is trying to make it disappear permanently, but the Democrats filibustered the bill. If the Democrat filibuster remains successful, the estate tax will return in 2011. Here is an article from Forbes last week that explains.

It should be of great interest to BMW enthusiants. Intelligent investing and saving are completely worthless because you have to torch half of it.

The vast majority of people don't own homes, they're struggling to keep their head above water in a house they can't afford.
